Servicing!
#1
Hi all, I have a 11 month old xtr multispace, 120 stopstart model,with ad blue. Approaching 7000 miles. I was surprised to see the service light come on already, as I mistakenly thought that service interval was 18000miles or 2yrs.
I contacted Citreon, and was informed that, servicing is now every 12 months or 18000 mile which ever sooner, and to contact my local dealer, which I did.
The adblue model requires 0/30 fully synthetic oil. All pushing up the price, so when I was informed that a 3yr service package, including 3 services was £400 inclusive of vat and parts, I decided to go for that package.
£400 for 3 services seems reasonable to me, especially as the first service was quoted to be approaching £200, and, I plan to keep this one for some time.
Posting this, as I wasn't aware of the changes to servicing, and possibly others are also unaware.

Hi andylobb the diesels have always been 12 months but used to be 12500 miles. Like you say they have gone up to 18000 or 12 months and the oil has changes to 0w30 but that is to do with fuel economy. Ford have done the same as its the same engine.

however if you are going to keep the vehicle long term it is advisable to change the oil more frequently, not a full service just the oil.

Manufacturers are in a bit of a war who can give the biggest service interval - this is far from what is best for the vehicle long term though just enough to get it though the warranty period. Oil and filters are cheap turbos are not.

Yeah, manufactures are only interested in getting the vehicle through the warranty then it's on your toes.

This link may be of interest to you guys, it's a PDF file containing a case study of turbo failure on a 1.6 hdi engine and shows the results of poor servicing and missed oil changes .

I kept a detailed records of my Multispace in the eight years that I owned it, dates and mileage whenever anything was done, recalls and all receipts for parts, oils and filters etc.

When I traded it in to the dealer they wern't interested in the file at all, as it would be punted into an auction they didn't want a paper trail as no warranty would be honoured.

A shame really as I'm sure whoever ended up with it would have liked the history.

I was told that my 2015 1.6HDi van (no ad-blue) required an oil change every 18,000 miles, but as my previous 2010 1.6HDi needed them every 12,500, I have opted to split the difference, and so I change my oil and filter every 14,000 miles. I change my gearbox oil every 30,000 miles, and change the air and fuel filters every 35,000 miles. These are all fairly simple tasks for a home mechanic to do, and you save a fortune on garage labour charges.

Thanks everyone. I got it wrong, have an up to date schedule now, it's every 16000miles or 12months. Not sure why I thought it was 18000 or 2 years, must have been told it somewhere, poss petrol models? All booked in and will be done every year regardless if low mileage.

Glad you have cleared it up, when you see how quickly the oil goes black an oil change is a good thing.

The oil filter is different on the adblue cars, although it may only be the oil seal.
To my knowledge, the 8 valve later engine does not suffer turbo failure like the earlier 16 valve unit.
In fact we haven't changed one single turbo yet.
I would still change the oil frequently, my Dacia duster gets done every 3000 miles !

As a general rule if you change the oil once a year then it is better to change it before the winter season as this is when the engine oil / engine takes the biggest hammering with all those cold starts and the build up of condensation in the oil if you do shorter journeys. Better to have clean fresh oil for the hardest season.
